Man involved in Mafia slaying gets probation for drug charge

Posted: Updated:

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - An 82-year-old man who was convicted in the 1970s killing of a nephew of notorious mob boss Carlo Gambino has been sentenced to three years of probation for a felony drug charge in Wyoming.

KGAB-AM reported Tuesday that a Cheyenne-area trooper found 35 pounds (16 kilograms) of marijuana in Henry Sentner's rental car last year after the South Carolina man was pulled over for speeding.

Sentner pleaded guilty to a possession with intent to deliver marijuana charge in March as part of a plea deal.

Felony possession of marijuana and speeding charges were dropped in exchange for the plea.

Authorities say Sentner served 15 years in prison for the killing of Emanuel Gambino, the nephew of mafia leader Carlo Gambino, in 1972.
